You can calculate your due date by subtracting three months from the first day of your last menstrual period LMP and then add a week. Use our pregnancy calculator. A pregnancy is based on being days long, which is 40 weeks more like 10 months not 9! When we give you a due date we consider 37 to 42 weeks to be full-term, so even if your baby is born two weeks before your due date it is not considered premature. Because few women know the exact day they ovulated or conceived, an ultrasound done in the first trimester of pregnancy has been shown to the be the most accurate way to date a pregnancy. If an ultrasound date in the first trimester differs from your LMP date by seven days or more, we would go with the ultrasound. Ultrasounds done later in the pregnancy are less accurate for dating, so if your due date is set in the first trimester, it shouldn't be changed.
As you know with you first baby will come whenever it wants anyways I guess. I'm a planner and this is like torture.
Dating scan vs LMP?
I guess I'm just worried because I'm measuring 2 weeks ahead and my ob had already said I better have my bags packed early this time wasn't ready at all when I went into labor! And I'm also worried that this baby is measuring so big. My first was 7 lbs 5 oz when she was born. Just had my glucose test today and am a little concerned, when I wasn't at all with my first. The only US that is accurate to date is before 14 wks-- it looses accuracy after that for dating due date.
And fundal height measurement is also a very poor way to estimate due date. I was told at 13 weeks that I was measuring 8 days ahead and from there the gap just keeps getting wider and wider. Now I'm just expecting a huge baby! My baby on ultrasound measures 4 days behind of my early dating scan, at 20 weeks my baby according to fundal height measures 8 weeks ahead, and at 22 weeks 7 weeks ahead, 24 weeks 2 weeks ahead.
I just have a really short torso and depends how baby is sitting that day. My babies have both been early and tiny 6. Don't worry, with my son I always measured weeks ahead. He came on my official due date and was 8lbs 12oz. They went off a 6 week scan for me and it has been inaccurate this entire time doesn't even make sense with when I had sex!!!
Every scan I had after that I measure a couple more days ahead. Initially it was May 3, but now it's looking more like April 27, which has lined up with scans at 9 weeks, 13 weeks, and 21 weeks. In fact, if your lmp. Due date is dec 19th and whose scan due dates.
